Welcome to the EPE Chat Zone online forum

The EPE Chat Zone forum is undergoing major changes during October 2017. We hope to have a new forum site and the legacy EPE forum will switch to 'read-only' mode as a matter of course. Please check back for more news.



Please Take Note


The EPE Chat Zone forum uses legacy software that has reached its end of life. Although it's been proven to be robust and reliable, the elderly Discus software it uses is totally obsolete and has not been supported for many year after its programmers ceased trading.


EPE is aiming to migrate to a modern electronics forum offering more features and better security. This situation is however subject to change. We also hope to maintain the old forum for reference purposes for the foreseeable future, but if web server upgrades and patches etc. make the forum software no longer compatible then sadly the contents of the EPE Chat Zone forum will be lost for good.


We'll announce more news as soon as we can.
